March 10 (Reuters) - (This March 10 story corrects to say allowing airlines .. to register rights to leased aircraft ..not.. to register as property)

Russia's government said on Thursday that it had proposed in draft legislation allowing Russian airlines to register the rights to leased foreign planes and for the planes to be given Russian airworthiness certificates.

The government added in a message on the Telegram messaging app that it had also proposed restricting foreign ships' entry into Russian ports.
